Wheel Barrel Cushion Cover & Cushion Pad Design & pattern by Esther Hartley
This bolster style cushion is designed to give support to the small of the back or the neck. The cushion cover is knitted in the round using 3 colours in a textured stitch but will also look great in a multitude of colours, 2 colours or just one. The button closure at each end allows the cover to be easily removed but is also a decorative addition. Instructions on how to make the cushion pad are also included.

Finishing Secure and weave in all loose ends. Close the cast off edge on the circular ends to make a smooth line.
On the middle section of the cushion cover, sew 24 buttons on each end approximately 3 rows from cast on/ castoff edge lining up with the buttonholes on circular ends.
Lining for Cushion Pad Lay out the cotton sheeting on a flat surface and using a ruler and a pencil mark and cut out a rectangle measuring 47cm x 71cm (18.5” x 28”). Using a compass mark and cut out two circles measuring 24cm (9.5”) in diameter.
Fold the rectangle in half lengthwise. (See Diagram 1). Sew along the open edges 0.6cm (0.25”) from edge leaving a 15cm (6”) opening to allow for filling. Press open the seam all the way along, including the seam allowance of the opening. Be sure to make a crease where the ‘stitches’ would be if you had sewn along the entire edge. This will be your sewing guide later on.
Sew the two circular pieces to each end. (See Diagram 2). Finish the raw edges with zig-zag stitch and secure loose ends. Turn the lining right side outwards and fill with the polyester fiberfil until you have fully stuffed the cushion pad.
Finally, close the opening using blind stitch (also known as ladder stitch) along the creased seam allowance.
Fitting Cover over Cushion Pad Attach one circular end to the middle section using the buttons. Insert the cushion pad while stretching the cover so it reaches the other end of the pad. Now attach the other circular end. It might appear that the cover is slightly too small at first but when the final button is closed you will find it is a nice snug fit. Puff and pull the cushion into shape tweaking the frilled edge around the buttons (see right).
Emily Ocker’s Circular Cast On Technique
Make a loop of yarn with the short end hanging down.
With a crochet hook, *draw a loop through main loop, then draw another loop through this loop. Repeat from * for each stitch to be cast on.

When you have cast on the required number of stitches, pull on the short end (shown by arrow) to tighten the loop and close the circle. This can also be done later when you have knitted a few rows or when weaving in the loose ends. (Courtesy of Elizabeth Zimmermann’s Knitter’s Almanac (Dover, 1981)
